Haptic devices are starting to be used for applications such as industrial or automotive monitors, displays on white goods such as washing machines, etc. However, these devices are also suitable for smartphones, notebook computers, and other ICT products. TDK offers haptic device products utilizing the piezoelectric effect.
The methods of use of automobiles will change substantially in the future including autonomous driving and car sharing services, and the human machine interface (HMI) between drivers and their cars will also completely change. The automobile industry is developing the digital cockpit in pursuit of an HMI that will provide safety and reassurance while freeing drivers from the burdens of driving and allow time to be used meaningfully and in comfort. Below is an introduction to TDK product and technologies that enhance the value of the digital cockpit with the aim of achieving an HMI that ensures and enhance safety and reassurance through the driver's senses.
TDK Corporation presents two evaluation kits that provide an initial impression of the varied possibilities of haptic feedback that can be realized with PowerHap™ piezo actuators.
TDK Corporation has extended its portfolio of PowerHap™ piezo actuators for haptic feedback with the new miniature rectangular 0904H014V060 and 1204H018V060 actuators. They have dimensions of only 9 x 3.75 x 1.4 mm and 12 x 4 x 1.8 mm, respectively.
The innovative PowerHap™ piezo actuator with haptic feedback and integrated sensor functionality is now available in three compact types – 0909H011V060, 1313H018V120 and 2626H023V120 – which can achieve an very high acceleration of 2.5 g, 7 g and 35 g, respectively, under a load of 100 grams.
Industry 4.0 is being shaped by the continuing rise in the degree of automation, by the digitalization that includes the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and by high levels of energy efficiency. In this respect, TDK presents a wide range of innovative EPCOS and TDK key components.
